If a meat ball, I mean a real meatball, started talking to you and asked you not to eat it, would you think for a moment that that meatball was possessed by a spirit? It amazes me how people question their spirituality when with out it they wouldn't be able to question anything at all.
You do not have a spirit. You are a spirit. It is your very life essence. It is all that you see, all that you hear, all that you experience. It is you. For a talking meatball to say it is just a talking meatball is, at least to my ears, silly.
"Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder."
Most of us understand what THAT means. But also, everything else
is equally in the "eyes of the beholder". A "higher truth" involves the notion that everybody "sees", through ones own (largely unconscious) creation and participation, a unique, differing reality, with differing understandings, differing meanings, and differing agreements or disagreements with differing "facts", "realities" and "possibilities".
The "higher truth" involves WHAT does the SEEING, and how and in what ways SEEING "occurs". "Seeing" and "creation" on this level aren't much different.
People get caught up in all types of arguments about the "beauty" and in the "details of the beauty", but they largely forget the most important aspect to it all. The beholder! What is it that is doing the "beholding"?
Call it whatever you want. Play with meanings and definitions. We all do. But the BEST thing to play with is your own experience of yourself AS THE BEHOLDER
. And grant everybody else the right and freedom to "behold" however the hell they choose to. Each version will/must be "different". Understanding of course, that many of them will and do behold themselves as some sort of "meatball". :confused2:
That which creates and defines all-that-is can have it be anything it chooses it to be - even a "meatball"!
That which conceives can conceive anything to be just about anything.
As long as you imagine yourself to be an "isolated viewpoint", then you will experience "differing". Within THAT framework there can only be different ways of seeing, interpreting, explaining, defining and experiencing. The only RIGHT EXPLANATION is that what I just described occurs. It is "natural". It is "the way it is".
Limited viewpoints of highly focused conditioned consciousness trying to argue and discuss the "unlimited". It can be interesting, and even humurous to watch.
Damn, now I have done it to! I have gone OFF-TOPIC!
